Sciatica Relief in Sun Prairie

Woman with pain in backSciatica is lower back pain that radiates down the back of the leg to the knee or foot, caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve caused by lumbar or pelvic subluxations. It usually gets worse with periods of sitting or standing. Sciatica often affects pregnant women, those with diabetes, and people who are obese.

Typical Symptoms

  • Hip pain
  • A tingling or burning feeling down the leg
  • Weakness, numbness, or a difficult time moving the leg or foot
  • Continual pain that affects one side of the buttocks
  • A shooting pain that makes it uncomfortable to stand up

Our Natural Approach

Chiropractic adjustments with lumbar decompression and/or flexion-distraction techniques are effective in correcting the causes and relieving sciatic pain. We may also do some work to relieve the muscle tension in the hips and glutes caused by the lower back and pelvic misalignments that can lead to pain.

Can’t Get to Us Right Away?

Until you can get into the practice for relief, try some simple piriformis stretches (a seated figure 4 stretch works great), which can temporarily ease your discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get sciatica?

Sciatica is often the result of cumulative damage. Years of poor posture and being overweight can contribute to sciatica. Something as simple as bending over to tie your shoes can trigger an episode. Spinal deterioration is another culprit.

Can chiropractic cure it?

This type of natural care cures nothing! Only your body can do that. The purpose of chiropractic is to help your spine work as it should, reducing nerve irritation and restoring your body’s healing ability.

How long will it take to get relief?

Patients often notice relief within the first few adjustments.
